Hotel Saint-Barth Isle de France reopens October under the Cheval Bland brand
Hotel Saint-Barth Isle de France is reopening this October as a Cheval Blanc property, owned and managed by LVMH Hotel Management (LVMH Group). The Cheval Blanc St-Barth Isle de France has since been undergoing a series of enhancements and renovations since being acquired by LVMH in 2013.
This will be the third Maison in the portfolio, joining Cheval Blanc Randheli in the Maldives, which opened in November 2013 to great acclaim, and Cheval Blanc Courchevel, the 36-room ski-in ski-out Maison in Courchevel 1850.
Novelties at the new Cheval Blanc include: a Cheval Blanc Spa featuring Guerlain (exclusively in the Caribbean) with four treatment rooms, a brand new fitness center, offering personal training sessions and the latest Technogym equipment, overlooking Flamands Bay.
Cheval Blanc’s Art de Recevoir service philosophy, will be completed by the creation of new tailor-made experiences and activities crafted by the Maison’s Alchemists.
New touches include Tropical Chic, a new signature fragrance for the Maison, composed by Thierry Wasser, the nose at Guerlain, new Cheval Blanc amenities, and a wonderful new look for the Ambassadeurs, inspired by the fabled glamour of St Barts in the 1950’s and 60’s, creating an elegant, laid-back style that doesn’t take itself too seriously.
Guests will also be pleasantly surprised by the Maison’s partnership with French hair pioneer Leonor Greyl – highly sought after on red carpets and runways worldwide – to develop a nourishing product line for Cheval Blanc that protects hair from its exposure to sun and sea. The chosen amenities contain specially selected organic plant-based active ingredients known for their moisturizing properties – a perfect remedy for the St Barts sunshine.
The Maison’s new color palette combines Cheval Blanc’s signature taupe with a daring blush pink – created just for Cheval Blanc St-Barth Isle de France – that strikingly enhances the Maison’s trademark blue. This new color scheme pays tribute to the Caribbean turquoise waters and colorful local façades.
